MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — January 26, 2010 — Clearwell Systems, Inc., a leader in intelligent e-discovery, today announced it will host an E-Discovery SuperSession with industry experts at the upcoming LegalTech® New York conference. Clearwell’s panel of e-discovery specialists will share their insights on the future of e-discovery during three separate sessions on Monday, February 1, from 1-5 p.m. in Concourse G at the Hilton New York.

The first session, “The E-Discovery Expert Panel,” begins at 1:00 p.m. and will provide attendees with meaningful expertise from their peers at law firms and enterprises about best practices for deploying e-discovery solutions and bringing e-discovery in-house. Dean Gonsowski, vice president of e-discovery services at Clearwell, will moderate the panel that includes:

  • Jay Brudz, senior counsel, legal technology at GE;
  • Ron Best, director of legal information systems at Munger, Tolles and Olson, LLP, and

The second session, “Strategies for Transparency and Cooperation in E-Discovery,” begins at 2:15 p.m. and brings together legal experts that will discuss ways to make e-discovery more transparent. The session will address demands from litigators, judges, and organizations such as The Sedona Conference to refocus litigation toward a more cooperative resolution of legal disputes. Gonsowski will host the discussion along with:

  • Sean Gallagher, partner at Hogan & Hartson, LLP and
  • Lauren Schwartzreich, associate at Outten and Golden, LLP


The final session, “Ask the E-Discovery Doctors,” begins at 3:30 p.m. and features a panel of e-discovery consultants and visionaries who will take live questions from the audience about the challenges facing the e-discovery industry today. The “doctors” will provide their prescriptions for a wide-range of topics including whether e-discovery should be outsourced or performed in-house; how early case assessment (ECA) should really be performed; and when an organization has a duty to preserve their documentation. Weighing in during this interactive and frank discussion moderated by Gonsowski will be:

  • Craig Ball, attorney and president, Craig D. Ball, P.C.
  • Ralph Losey, attorney and co-chair of E-Discovery Practice Group, Akerman Senterfitt, and
